Colors and textures
Metal that surrounds your fireplace can be of different colors and also of different textures. It will easily highlight your decor style or make a bold statement if that’s what you want. It can be a sleek and shiny metal-clad fireplace, an aged and textured, blackened metal fireplace, and there are many more ideas – this usually depends on the style of your room, for example a sleek metal fireplace will fit a minimalist room while a aged textured copper room will be a good idea for a mid-century modern living room. You can experiment with copper, steel, and other metals and look to match or contrast with your color scheme and style.
Decor and use
Make your metal-clad fireplace great and take a whole wall with you – it will be your statement in the room. Opt for a double-sided room to separate the rooms and give both cosiness and a warm feeling. Create some built-in niches for firewood, even if the fireplace is not working, they will add coziness. Skip the mantels or leave them unadorned – fireplaces surrounded by metal are usually more laconic. Get inspired!
